The winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita Wurst, has her biography published today! This book was written by Mario R. Lackner, and “Dr. Eurovision” – Irving Wolther, as a tribute to the bearded Diva, the Austrian Eurovision winner.
Lackner and Wolther say that “Conchita Wurst – Backstage” is a book about a strong artist that breaks all standards. They say that Conchita Wurst moves our world – she irritates, fascinates, and uses the biggest stage in the world – the Eurovision Song Contest, to share her message of freedom, love, and acceptance.
The book explains everything that happened “Backstage” – who are all those people who co-created Conchita, what drives them, how did they come together. It also gives a look to Conchita’s hometown, family, and friends.
